The hotel lobby is located at the 9F. There is an Apple
Store in front of the building. The elevators at the GF used to go up to 9F are fast and not busy. There is one elevator that goes directly to the hotel rooms.
The hotel location is perfect for a family leisure trip, especially if you want to stay at the Myeongdong area. The Euljiro-1 subway station is just at the corner, easily accessible to explore Seoul. Lots of restaurants, underground shopping, money changers, and other small stores surround the building; Lotte Dept store is just across. It’s in a busy area but not in the middle of it all so that the hotel itself is quiet and not chaotic. Bottled water and coffee sachets were replenished everyday and there is free ice and drinking water dispenser on every floor.
We got the Edge room which is a plus as the windows are two whole walls so room looks spacious. The only thing we did not like about the room is that the bathtub glass partition is just 1/4 the width of the tub so water goes out unto bath floor when you shower.
Otherwise, we recommend Stanford Myeongdong and would book here again when we go back to Seoul.

This properly is very well located at Myeongdong. Right in the middle of the shopping district with many restaurants & amenities within walking distance. Room was spacious & well maintained. Only 2 complaints. Design of the bath tub is not right. Water is spilling onto the floor via the ledge. Not enough washing & drying machines. Had to wake up a 5am just to do our laundry. Management should add at least another two sets of washer / dryer for such a large property

The hotel is located in an excellent location as it's near Myeongdong streetfood alley, shops, restaurants, train station and bus stops. Try also to go to Lotte Department Store through Myeongdong's underground shopping center, it has so many options that you may like (entrance is just a little bit on the left side of Stanford near Ibis). The hotel is just 1 minute walk to 711 and a pharmacy too. The hotel has foreign currency exchange machine, microwave and luggage weighing scale in the 9th floor (reception). The room is cleaned daily. We also love that there's water/ice maker in every floor so we don't have to spend money on that. Every hotel staff there are very nice and helpful. There's about 4 laundry and dryer coin machines in the 10th floor that you can use and it's not very busy so we can wash/dry our clothes anytime. It costs 3000 won for each cycle and 500 won each for the detergent or dryer fabric softener. We'll stay there again next time when we go to Seoul. We really love our stay there.

Location was superb with food and shopping at walking distance. Fairly new Hotel. Great attention front desk. However pretty surprised that they do not have basic toilet amenities like toothbrush toothpaste (so BYO) PowerPoint at bed area 1 wasn't working. Room was pretty small even though it was a superior twin but very clean room. Bathroom make wasn't fantastic water get off the bath room easily so need shower with shower curtain carefully blocked and shower head facing inwards the blinds side.

Location is very good. Room is clean too. But for the price paid for the size of the room either you can get bigger ones even around the same location or pay lesser for the same size room. No amenities provided except shampoo etc. hence, I don’t know whats the reason for the high price. Front desk service not bad, has extra mile service when I wanted to upgrade my room (paid). Reservation team not very flexible, just want to earn money. Overall, can stay again if price is lower for the small room.

Good location right in the central of main attractions, easy to get to. The hotel is very clean and quiet. We are on the 17 floor. Reception is on the 9th floor, there is a filtered water station on every floor. I like the toilet with bidet and an air perifier in our room.

We stayed as a family group for 6 nights and had three rooms. The rooms were clean and modern and the service was great. Close to shopping area and handy to subway. you get a bit of noise but its far enough away form the real noisy area. We booked breakfast for our stay and this was a great way to start the day Only real complaint is that we had a late flight out and had to pay for the 20000 won per hour for 3 more hours of late check out . ( they gave one hour free). We thought with 6 nights nad 3 rooms they could have waived this.

Would recommend the hotel if you like to be in a very accessible location. Airport Bus is very few steps away. Above Apple Store. Right side of the apple store, is Ulgiro-1, Exit 6. Opposite Lotte Department Store. Nearby are Michelin-Bib Gourmand Restaurants, 7/11, Korean Chicken Restaurants and Coffee Shops.

Room a bit on a smaller size considering we had two queen beds. It is clean though. There’s a washing machine and dryer on 10/F. One elevator goes up directly to the level of guest rooms, while the other elevator stops at 9/F for you to transfer up guest room level.

The Stanford is perfect base for sightseeing. The main bus from the airport stops out the front of the Ibis hotel, which is about 100m away.

I was travelling with a friend and the twin room was 2 single beds that we were basically touching. We had to do a little rearranging of the furniture to give us both a little space. We were only travelling with small carry on suitcases and it was still a struggle to fit the bags. One had to live on the desk. If you travel with larger suitcases, I’d get a bigger room. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet.

The breakfast was fine, but there’s a lot of places to eat around the hotel.

The location and price is the best part of the hotel. It’s right in the heart of Myeongdong and there’s so much to see and do around the hotel. The Myeongdong night markets are around the corner and there’s plenty of shopping and restaurants nearby. We walked to Seoul Tower and Gwangjang Food Market and both were an easy 1/2hr walk. The Namdaemun market is about a 15min walk. The subway is close to the hotel and all the tourist spots are easily accessible by the subway.

The Stanford isn’t a luxury hotel, but we hardly spent any time in our room and was a great choice for our needs.

Hotel is great overall and very new. Only draw back is that they only have 2 washing machine and 2 dryers. One cycle of washing is around 35 min and drying is around 45 minute. There was always long queue to use the dryer. I could not dry my clothes after washing and hotel does not offer laundry service

I found the "Airport limousine bus" an affordable and easy journey from ICN to Myeong-Dong. It stopped in front of the Ibis Hotel which is next door to the Stanford. Price was about KRW 17,000 or $13 USD per person each way and ticket kiosk was outside arrivals hall. Easy and inexpensive! Have FUN! Google: ICN airport limousine
